London Calling: Creating a customisable, multi-tenanted i18n solution

Video details

Speaker: Liam Wiltshire
Length: 45:42


Buycraft is a multi-tenanted gCommerce platform for Minecraft. Having supported over 500,000 servers around the world, it needs to support a whole range of languages. Centralised i10n sucks - users can’t customise it, if the application doesn’t have a language file then you can’t use that language, and users cannot add their own strings to translate. This is exactly how Buycraft worked - what’s a dev to do? Join Liam to find out how Buycraft investigated, hacked and ‘borrowed’ code to solve this problem to provide a fully flexible, i10n layer for all their customers.
